 The Hadlow Down Festival Minimize

Hadlow Down Festival 2017 is underway

Hadlow Down Festival will be launched at the Village Fayre on Saturday 17th June at Tinkers Park and go through to Sunday 17th September 2017. The Parish Council was successful in its bid to the Big Lottery Fund under the “Celebrate” banner and has been awarded a small grant to deliver the Festival. This is the first time the village has delivered a Festival of events so it offers a unique opportunity to bring local organisations and the community together in providing a range of events, activities, workshops, sports and celebrations.

There is huge enthusiasm within the village to make the Festival a great success and offer something a little different. It looks to be a busy time over the summer as there will be a variety of activities and celebrations – something for everyone! Some of the events will be regular calendar events but badged under the Festival banner, however, there will be plenty of exciting new events and activities taking place. To whet your appetite, there will be a Scarecrow Trail linking into some Open Gardens in the village, pop-up restaurants, and sports coaching for young people, inter-generational bowling, a tea dance, village quiz night and film night, Horticultural show, a dog show, Shakespeare Rocks and lots more planned.

From May, there will be the full programme of events on the Hadlow Down website at www.hadlowdown.com where you can also keep up-to-date with the latest news on our Facebook page. We hope you enjoy the Festival and look forward to seeing you.

The Playing Field committee have asked us to remind everyone that one of the current collection boxes for the green tokens in the Uckfield Branch is in support of the Playing Field.
For those who are not regular Waitrose shoppers you receive one of these tokens every time you shop and choose to put it in one of three current 'Good Causes' boxes as you exit.  Each good cause receives cash commensurate with the amount of tokens it attracts at the end of the promotion period.
If you usually shop elsewhere it maybe worth trying shopping at Waitrose while this promotion is on to enjoy their excellent products and service. (As well as the FREE coffee and daily newspaper if you sign up for a loyalty card.)

The following is an extract from the latest Wealden Police Update:
Buxted – an outbuilding on a farm in Howbourne Lane was broken into, resulting in the theft of tractor batteries last Thursday 1 December. The owner saw a small silver hatchback, partial registration number of X32, speeding away from the property at approximately 2.30pm that afternoon but did not suspect anything untoward due to the driveway being a shared space. Shortly afterwards however, the burglary was discovered with the loss translating to approximately £300. The driver of the silver car was described as being about 40, dark haired and unshaven. 
Lines of enquiry are being followed and witnesses to the incident, or anyone who thinks they may have related information, is asked to contact us and quote reference 468 of 06/12.
